The Ottawa Redblacks look to build on their solid 4-2-1 start to the season. Henry Burris is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 810 yards, four touchdowns and four interception. Burris has four touchdown passes in his last three games.

The Redblacks took care of the Alouettes on the road in week 2 by 15 points, and now they're catching Montreal at home while coming off a bye. The Alouettes are a sinking ship right now and have allowed a combined 61 points in their last two weeks.
You guys know how I feel about big chalk, but this is one of those spots where you lay it. Montreal has done nothing well this season since its week 1 win over Winnipeg.
